i've been looking for a new series to pick up now that i'm done reading through the political books in the house and am in the pit of waiting for another got book, but i really wanna try to find some nice good quality things to get from the library (but i also kind of don't want to ask a librarian since oops i live in the deep south so i am not sure how likely a librarian would be to know of a rec / not give me an odd look at the specificity of it), so uh.
i really like romance stuff, so that's a good, and i guess i'll narrow it down a little bit to something that's got some modern fantasy / high fantasy / supernatural feels (i'm not super picky, i just like worlds where it's not just humans kicking around). ideally i'd love something that has the main pairing be a gay couple (preferably where one doesn't die or where there's not a huge dramatic angst fest over their sexuality), but i have no idea how feasible that's gonna be?
like i guess to make it a lot easier to sum up what i'm wanting - i'd want something kind of in the vein of if alec and magnus from shadowhunters had their own book, without any of the boiling down alec to his gayness or there being a huge thing over magnus sleeping with other people. but i'd take something with a heterosexual pairing if it's pretty wholesome, i've read a lot of those "young adult teen vampire romance novels" (like i loved the night world series and the vampire academy one wasn't terribad) and i kind of miss some of the better ship dynamics in there even if i got bored with some of the storylines.
or i guess on the other side of it, if i was on ao3, i'd be checking mlm main pairing, no main character death, supernatural elements, all ratings, and then filtering out things like "all hurt little comfort" or cheating plotlines and being picky on abuse plotlines or "love triangles" and stuff like that.
so yeah uh. recs please?
